Access Issue: Bolt Failures - Donations Help Details
Accelerated corrosion that targets stainless steel bolts (SCC) has caused multiple failures, including both anchor bolts on a route that a climber was being lowered off of. Please read the BOLTS note on the main page. You can also help the cause by visiting the Bivy during your stay and giving QX some reds, whites, or if youre feeling generous, some BLUES!
From the balcony on the north side of the Clocktower, climb up through fins and cracks up to a left-leaning dihedral that begins at a ledge. Continue up this to a roof. Plug good gear in the horizontal, then pull yourself over on big holds to another ledge. Notice the ancient bolts - Long Dong's first! Do a final pullup onto the summit, and build a gear anchor. Descend via nearby bolted anchor.
North face of the Clocktower. Starts at a balcony of stone below the Presidents area and above the main Clocktower platform.
